Spain is indeed one of the most romantic countries in the world. With this in mind, furniture is given a more appropriate approach in the form of the Barcelona love seat. What can be more romantic than sharing a seat with the person you love?
By popular definition, these chairs are: intended for only two people, small and compact in size, and best for cuddling and comfort. It was known in the 1800’s during the Victorian era when women wore heavy dresses and skirts, that were too uncomfortable to walk around with. The best relief from this situation was a comfortable chair they can slouch on and fall back. Before the term Barcelona love seat was known, these couches were simply referred to as wide seats that can hold a person wearing a thick garment.
Love seats before were just two-seater couches or sofas – a miniature of the typical home couch. It had the same frame, material and design, with the only difference of being smaller in size. Rather than the long couch or the single-seat couch, it had the size in between of those two. With the modern interior and furniture design today, this has innovated to modern versions. What is there in store for the modern home owner? How can the Barcelona love seatfit the contemporary home and way of living?
Contemporary furniture is all about sleek edges and minimalist designs. The latest in these unique pieces of furniture, is the silhouette love seat which is shaped to fit the curve of the body upon sitting down. The back is comfortably reclined while the seat itself is straight but with curves on the part where the back of the knees will fall. Two people can comfortably relax on the chairs, with no worries of feeling sore even after long hours of sitting down. A single-seat version of this is also seen in eames office chair and eames DSW chairs, making it a perfect choice for a minimalist-type of office.
Forget about cotton-covered love seats or wooden love seats, because the latest versions make use of the classic leather. The leather love seats come in three colors – antique brown, black and white. With the front part using leather, the back of the seats are made with aluminum to give the look a modern appeal. Leather and metal combined make the perfect modern interior design for both the home and the office.
Together with leather, plastic and fiberglass can also make a great choice for material as long as it is used with metal and aluminum. The perfect example is the eames DSR chair that offers a clean and edgy look to any room but more so in the dining room because of the height that it provides. The base is also used with chrome which is the reason behind the popular nickname. the “Eiffel Tower”. Although, these usually come in single seats, it can also make a great idea for love seats, if you want yours custom-made.
